Academic Integrity

Evergreen Valley High School Academic Integrity Policy

 

We’re Cougars! We ROAR:  

Realize our Potential

Own our Actions

Act with Integrity

Respect our Community

 

We’re Cougars, it’s what we do!

Evergreen Valley High School believes in learning. Students learn nothing when they cheat and plagiarize. While it may be tempting to take “academic shortcuts” through unethical means, long-term  you will not be prepared for the rigors of college, and later the work world, if you do not learn to do your own work!  To help our students become ready for life, EVHS wants students to earn their grades the honest way so they become thinking and  responsible citizens able  to participate in democratic life. This is why academic integrity is expected of all students at Evergreen Valley High School.

A person with academic integrity does not cheat or plagiarize.

 

Cheating is defined as the act of obtaining or attempting to obtain credit for academic work through the use of any dishonest, deceptive, or fraudulent means. Cheating includes but is not limited to the following:

 

1.  Copying a part or whole of someone else’s class or homework, test, project, lab, final exam, essay, etc.

 

2.  Allowing  another student to copy your work in part or in whole.

 

3.  Changing or attempting to change any grade in any way, or interfering with the grading process.

 

4.  Mis-using technology by copying, texting, forwarding, or photographing material without proper citation or with possible intention to disperse.

 

5.  Attempting to turn work or an exam in late without permission from the instructor.

 

Plagiarism is defined as representing the work of someone else as your own without giving that person or institution credit. Incorporation of another’s work into one’s own requires acknowledgement. Plagiarism includes but is not limited to:

 

1.   Incorporating into your own work the works of others including: ideas, phrases, paragraphs, parts or whole pieces of research, and reference material without giving appropriate credit to the original source and/or representing the product as one own’s work.

 

2.  Claiming someone else’s artistic or scholarly research or work like music, video, poetry, computer programs, photographs, paintings, drawings, or similar works as one’s own.

 

3.  Submitting the same work, identically or with some revision, in two different courses. This is referred to as self-plagiarism.
